it's bad enough that i have to go into work at 6 am. i guess everyone needs tech support. but that's not a huge deal. anyway, i'm running behind a few minutes. my windshield is iced over. but i drive until the car heats up enough that the windshield doesn't ice up after a blast from the washer fluid.
the roads are empty so i'm flying down the highways. i make an exit from one highway to another and hit a pothole pretty hard. made my cd skip, so i thought, hmmm it would suck if my tire went flat from that. but i just kept cruising. i get a mile down the road at about 70 mph when the car starts to pull and make noise and smoke. ####. it did go flat. so i pull over and get out to inspect the damage. shredded.
rummage through the trunk. find a lugwrench, spare tire, and a jack. well i don't have a lever for the jack. #### me. so i have to call and wake up a drunk friend. they get there about 30 minutes later with a jack. get the old tire off, put the spare on. and i'm on my way.
luckily they followed me because my spare goes flat in about a quarter of a mile. so we pull over. pull the spare off and try the spare from their car. it doesn't fit. so i pull all my good stuff out of my car, lock it up and leave on the side of the road. they drive me to work, where i have to check them in through security. PIA. get dropped off and go in over an hour late.
question, where can i get a new tire on new years day?
oh, and #### you 2008.
